Hit by an Uninsured Motorist? Learn Your Rights

Written by Malman Law, reviewed by Steve J. Malman.

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, on average, there are more than 300,000 motor vehicle accidents in the state of Illinois each year. Although this number alone is staggering, factor in that nearly 100,000 of these accidents result in injuries, and the significance of this number is only magnified. Being injured in one of these motor vehicle accidents is no fault of your own. Life is full of uncertainties and mishaps, however, surrounding yourself with people, and professionals, who have your best interest in mind is the easiest way to overcome these obstacles. An Illinois car accident lawyer is definitely one of these people. Chicago accident attorneys work with you, the victim, to ensure that you are fully compensated for your injuries. By helping you manage the stress and recovery involved with a motor vehicle accident claim, they can guarantee excellent results.

Manage Stress

Being involved in an accident is enough stress. At a time like this, the last thing you need is the additional stress of dealing with an insurance company on your own. Insurance companies know that most drivers are unaware of their rights when it comes to accident claims. They sometimes use this to their advantage, making the claim process extremely difficult and lengthy. A personal injury attorney in Illinois works directly with the insurance company so that you don’t have to. Having qualified legal representation on your side means that you don’t have to fight. Instead, you can spend your time tending to your injuries, leaving the stress to the professionals.

Manage Recovery

When it comes to an accident, the thought of recovery is most often associated with physical injuries. However, a serious motor vehicle accident can have devastating emotional and financial effects as well. When a person is involved in an accident, their road to recovery may include managing their anxiety in order to travel in a motor vehicle again, or it may involve learning how to lead a normal life again post injuries. Whether the injuries are great or minor, seen or unseen, any person who has been involved in an accident deserves the opportunity to return to their normal life. A personal injury lawyer works hard to get their client compensated for the physical and emotional injuries they have sustained in order to do just that.

Providing Results

When you have to deal with an insurance company because of a motor vehicle accident, having an experienced car accident lawyer in Illinois on your side is essential. In reality, a personal injury lawyer can be the deciding factor in the outcome of your case. They work hard handling accident cases on a daily basis and ensuring that all their clients are compensated. This experience gives them the upper-hand when it comes to communicating with insurance companies in order to guarantee you the results that you need. When you are trying to recover from your injuries and manage debt from medical bills, you need results that are fair and fast. Working with an attorney will ensure that your accident claim is settled fairly and as fast as possible, always giving you the results you need.
